yeah yeah, i posted something similar below. but this thing won't let me edit the Title subject line...
someone help me out. i just need to make / partition smaller using parted or similar. it should work on ext3 since the start node stays the same.
i recently installed fedora core2. i've been using linux everyday for about 8 years.
this one has me stumped for a few hours.
i was lazy and just made one partition for /
i know i know, but it's for someone else who is a newbie and won't care/notice.
but i need to make room for an AFS cache partition
parted won't do it because supposedly the ext3 FS is not "cleanly unmounted" (system works fine)
it says this when i boot with a parted boot disk i made (1.6.6)
so i've been trying to run e2fsck on / (dev/hda2) but i can't unmount it when i'm on the fedora install;
and all the boot disks i have, have old e2fsck on them (unsupported features in FS), so the partition is unmounted but fsck won't work on it.
i've tried it every different way i know how. i guess the only other choice is to make a boot disk myself with the new e2fsck on it.
any other options?
i'm frustrated as hell.
alternatively, give me instructions on how to resize my / partition to make room for another ext2 partition at the end just before swap.
